SOURCE: Engine whine noise

most likely a belt tensioner or pulley take some penetrating oil and spray the center of each pulley one at a time if the noise stops you got your bad pulley if not take the belts off the motor and spin everything by hand to feel or hear any grinding noises if you still don't feel anything run the motor (not for more then a minute) with the belts off and if the noise is still apparent your timing belt needs to be checked right away! it may be on its way out and if that goes your motor is toast good luck and please rate -jeff

My Kia makes a whining noise upon acceleration- engine seems to be ok at freeway speed

check the condition of the alternater etc drive belts , to test rev engine and spray a little WD 40 onto the belts, if the whining goes then if your lucky a new set of belts will be all you need to change , but it could also mean a bearing is wearing out on one or more of the components that are being driven by the belts ,so more diagnosis would be needed if still whining after new set of drive belts
